Romantic getaway and a ultimate experience if you want a taste of the true Balinese culture. Nestled adjacent to the rice fields, Mandala Desa will not disappoint. We stayed for just two nights, and was given a complimentary upgrade to the private villa. Firstly, the staff and management were so welcoming and obliging. The efficiency and attention to detail is... More

Spent a total of 22 days in Bali in September. Of all the places my friend and I stayed this was our favorite and provided ultimate relaxation. We were upgraded to a villa, which was so kind. The villa was extremely clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We really appreciated the large container of purified water instead of the small water... More

By far the best place to stay in Bali. Having travelled around Bali many times I will always return to Mandela Desa. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious but still have the full Balinese style and atmosphere that you would want to experience being in Bali. This trip we were there with family and partners and we pretty much had... More

I stayed at Mandala Desa for several days during my last trip to Bali. The location is perfect; quiet and rural with great views but close to Ubud and other attractions.

For the 3rd time in 5 years, we have come back to Mandala desa to start our vacation in Bali in the most relaxed way possible. Located in a rural area with view on the rice fields, the best way for us to start a relaxing holiday is to float around in the pool overlooking the fields, and chill in... More

We spent a blissful 5 days here in mid August. Jacintha & ALL of her staff were SO friendly & helpful, also organizing local activities for us. Both the suite & villa were luxurious & pristine. The food delicious. The pool perfect for cooling down. Only 10mins from Ubud (by complimentary return-shuttle, at any time up till 9pm), meant that... More

I booked Mandala Desa after stumbling upon it on TA and after looking at the website booked my stay because it just felt right!!! And I was not wrong!!!
